Given this system of matrices, find the values of ๐ฅ, ๐ฆ, and ๐ง.
00:00:07.920 --> 00:00:15.050
Letโs recall the notation: ๐ด multiplied by ๐ which is lowercase because itโs a vector is equal to ๐.
00:00:15.980 --> 00:00:23.460
To find the values of ๐ฅ, ๐ฆ, and ๐ง, which are the elements of the vector that weโve called ๐, we need to find the inverse of ๐ด.
00:00:25.750 --> 00:00:29.340
๐ is equal to the inverse of ๐ด multiplied by ๐.
00:00:30.210 --> 00:00:32.510
Just a reminder though, the order does matter.
00:00:32.670 --> 00:00:40.950
And this doesnโt work if we work out ๐ times the inverse of ๐ด because the number of columns in ๐ are not equal to the number of rows in ๐ด.
00:00:42.720 --> 00:00:46.530
To find the inverse of ๐ด, we have a few convoluted steps to follow.
00:00:47.150 --> 00:00:53.310
Now, if youโre allowed to use a graphical calculator, you may do so at this point and skip onto the final step.
00:00:54.120 --> 00:01:09.550
Step one) Find the matrix of the cofactors, step two is to transpose the matrix of the cofactors to find its adjugate, and step three is to multiply this by one over the determinant of ๐ด.
00:01:11.060 --> 00:01:16.700
For the given matrix, this is the formula we need to use to help us find the matrix of the cofactors.
00:01:17.520 --> 00:01:24.290
A good way to remember this is to cover up the row and column youโre looking at and find the determinant of the matrix that remains.
00:01:25.300 --> 00:01:28.680
You can then apply the relevant sign to this number alternating as you go.
00:01:29.020 --> 00:01:37.180
The top row is positive, negative, positive, the second row is negative, positive, negative, and the third is positive, negative, positive.
00:01:37.900 --> 00:01:44.870
Remember if the formula tells you that the answer is negative, you must multiply by negative one, essentially changing the sign.
00:01:46.100 --> 00:01:52.280
First, weโll find the determinant of the two-by-two matrix in the first row and first column.
00:01:53.920 --> 00:02:02.340
To do this, we multiply the top left element by the bottom right then subtract the product of the top right and bottom left elements.
00:02:02.940 --> 00:02:11.060
The first element of the matrix is zero multiplied by zero minus zero multiplied by negative four, thatโs zero.
00:02:12.350 --> 00:02:22.700
The element in the first row and second column is calculated by working out negative two times zero minus negative eight times zero which is once again zero.
00:02:23.980 --> 00:02:33.860
The element in the first row and third column is negative two multiplied by negative four minus zero multiplied by negative eight which is eight.
00:02:35.270 --> 00:02:38.070
Letโs repeat this process for the second row.
00:02:38.870 --> 00:02:45.340
Negative one multiplied by zero minus negative one multiplied by negative four is negative four.
00:02:45.880 --> 00:02:51.100
When we substitute this into our matrix of cofactors though, we have to multiply by negative one.
00:02:51.450 --> 00:02:53.810
So our answer becomes positive four.
00:02:54.740 --> 00:03:08.660
One multiplied by zero minus negative one multiplied by negative eight is negative eight and one multiplied by negative four minus negative one multiplied by negative eight is negative 12.
00:03:09.310 --> 00:03:12.680
When we substitute this into our table, the sign is negative.
00:03:12.680 --> 00:03:15.920
So we multiply by negative one to give us positive 12.
00:03:16.930 --> 00:03:26.550
And finally, our third row negative one multiplied by zero minus negative one multiplied by zero is zero.
00:03:27.600 --> 00:03:33.480
One multiplied by zero minus negative one multiplied by negative two is negative two.
00:03:33.780 --> 00:03:38.330
Then, when I pop that in the table, multiply it by negative one to go back to negative two.
00:03:39.410 --> 00:03:46.320
And finally, one multiplied by zero minus negative one multiplied by negative two is negative two.
00:03:47.150 --> 00:03:49.260
We have our matrix of cofactors.
00:03:50.090 --> 00:03:54.130
Step two is to find the adjugate of the matrix of the cofactors.
00:03:54.570 --> 00:03:59.710
We do this by transposing the rows and columns, which looks like a reflection in the diagonal.
00:04:00.810 --> 00:04:03.140
The elements on the diagonal remain the same.
00:04:04.290 --> 00:04:10.390
We swap the zero with the four, the eight with the zero, and the 12 with the two.
00:04:12.060 --> 00:04:18.240
Our final step is to multiply the adjugate by one over the determinant of the original matrix.
00:04:19.090 --> 00:04:21.830
To calculate the determinant, we can use this formula.
00:04:22.300 --> 00:04:28.520
Weโre going to multiply each of the elements in the top row by their matching cofactors that we worked out at the start.
00:04:29.910 --> 00:04:38.470
One multiplied by zero minus negative one multiplied by zero add negative one multiplied by eight is negative eight.
00:04:39.940 --> 00:04:47.690
Weโre now going to multiply one over negative eight by the adjugate of the matrix of cofactors, which is as shown.
00:04:47.850 --> 00:04:50.340
We finally worked out the inverse of ๐ด.
00:04:51.440 --> 00:04:56.710
We said that to solve this system of matrices, we multiply ๐ by the inverse of ๐ด.
00:04:57.970 --> 00:05:07.600
๐ฅ is given by zero multiplied by four add negative a half multiplied by eight add zero multiplied by zero which is negative four.
00:05:08.450 --> 00:05:17.230
๐ฆ is zero multiplied by four add one multiplied by eight add negative a quarter multiplied by zero which is eight.
00:05:18.390 --> 00:05:28.490
And ๐ง is negative one multiplied by four add negative three-halves multiplied by eight and a quarter multiplied by zero which is negative 16.
00:05:29.680 --> 00:05:34.320
๐ฅ is negative four, ๐ฆ is eight, and ๐ง is negative 16.
